Superfecta Sunday in Hot Springs

We take a look at nice Arkansas route early on the card for our Superfecta Sunday.

Oaklawn Park Race 3 {1 mile~3 year-old Up~Fillies/Mares~Waiver Claiming}

This is a unique bunch of eight that will go to the gate. It is a race that is lacking in speed. The question then becomes who will be sent or pick up the pace by default? Speed numbers are fairly close which should make for a competitive event. Only two in this one have raced over the Arkansas dirt. All of this makes this one a very intriguing race. Our task is to string together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta box ticket.

#4 Freedom March [GB] (Santana / Gorder) might have the edge with the second highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one peaking bullet workout. This lass should track the pace closely and launch into the stretch. She shares the second highest speed number at the distance couple with a 75% in the money record from four efforts at same. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection.
$2 SHOW.

#1 Ol Sanish (Vazquez / Villafranco) could go off at the favorite with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one stout workout. She is the most experienced of the group and loves the Oaklawn track holding a 75% in the money record over it. This gal is another tracker that cruise nicely in a ground saving trip.

#7 Por Favor (E. Perez / Puhl) should challenge with the highest speed number at the distance coupled with a good 66% in the money record at same. She is another that should be part of the tracking crew. With ample rest she comes forward to the race with three hearty workouts.

#5 Cleverness (Birzer / Chelborad) should contend coming off an extended layoff. She holds the second highest overall speed number. This gal will get a nice change of scenery coming up from the Florida circuit. He workout tab of three excellent peaking works is an indication that she is ready.
